How can one get lead to float?

I'm surprised no smart-aleck thought of this before now:

Take "lead"; replace "d" with "f"; move "f" to the front; Replace "e" with "o"; add "t" at the end; and you suddenly have:

float !!!!!!!

(I know this puzzle is in the Science section...Well, isn't spelling a science ?)
